2007 Nissan Murano Trims

S

Avg. Price: $12,552

The snazzy 2007 Nissan Murano crossover is named after a type of sculpted Italian glass, and its unique body lines have set it apart from later crossovers. The 2007 Muran S 2WD features front-wheel drive and a 3.5-liter, 245-hp DOHC V6. It comes standard with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for supposedly seamless gear transitions. The Murano S seats five people in two rows and sits on 18-inch wheels. ABS and dual front-side and front and rear airbags are standard, as is a brand new tire pressure monitor.

Standard equipment is good for a base model and includes power windows, locks, and mirrors, and a 4-way power driver's seat. A trip computer, temperature display, l-zduaone climate control, and cruise control are included, and the steering wheel contains both audio and cruise controls. A CD player is provided. For style, the interior is trimmed in alloy, with leather on the wheel and shifter. Rear seats recline and split 60-40, as well as feature a folding armrest. On the outside, you'll find a rear spoiler and intermittent wipers. The liftgate does not open separately from the rear window. There are few options for the 2007 Murano S 2WD, but you can get a 10-way driver's seat and power pedals, a roof rack, and a towing package.

S AWD

Avg. Price: $12,599

All-wheel drive capability is the major benefit of the 2007 Nissan Murano S AWD crossover. Its all-wheel drive system features a limited slip differential and center locking differential. A 3.5-liter, 245-hp V6 engine and smooth-shift CVT transmission power the Murano S AWD, and it comes with the ABS brakes, new tire monitor, and dual front-side and front and rear airbags that you'll find in the 2WD base model. Stability and traction control are not available on the Murano S.

The 2007 Murano S AWD shares features with the 2WD model, including full power equipment and a 4-way power driver's seat, a trip computer, intermittent front and rear wipers, dual-zone climate control, cruise control (operated from the steering wheel), leather and alloy interior trim, and a CD player. The back row actually reclines and can also split-fold 60/40 for more trunk room. 18-inch alloy wheels and a subtle rear spoiler decorate the exterior. Options range from a 10-way driver's seat with power-adjustable pedals, to a roof rack, to a towing package, to splash guards. Drivers say the Murano S AWD is comfortable and the CVT works great. One problem is a tendency for the brakes to squeal when in reverse.

SE AWD

Avg. Price: $14,247

The 2007 Nissan Murano SE is the sporty version of the crossover SUV that distinguishes itself from the competition with its unique looks. The 2007 Murano SE has the same 3.5-liter, 245-hp DOHC V6 engine and CVT continuously variable transmission as the other models, but it features a sports-tuned suspension and stronger shocks. It also only comes in all-wheel drive, definitely designed for more outdoors-oriented drivers. ABS brakes, fog lights, xenon headlights, a rearview camera, a new tire monitor, and dual front-side and front and rear head airbags are standard. Stability and traction control are options.

In terms of interior features, the 2007 Murano SE shares comfort and convenience with the SL. A 10-way power driver's seat, cruise control (with controls on the steering wheel), leather and alloy trim, dual-zone climate control, universal remote, and a trip computer with compass and temperature display are all standard. Intermittent front and rear wipers and a rear spoiler adorn the exterior. Rear seats comfortably recline and split-fold 60/40 for more trunk room. Cupholders sit in both rows and there is a center console. Options are also similar to the SL, and add heated leather seats, a DVD player, navigation system, roof rails, chrome wheels, and upgraded audio system with MP3 capability.

A 10-way power driver's seat is part of the standard equipment, along with power lumbar support. Auto-dimming mirrors and a garage door opener are also found on the 2007 Murano SL, in addition to the cruise control, CD player, dual-zone climate control, and leather and alloy trim.
